Traverse City

Traverse City might be well known for its huge cherry industry, but its position along Grand Traverse Bay in Lake Michigan endows it with fine scenery and a wealth of outdoor attractions.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Traverse City: Petoskey (Little Traverse Wheelway, Petoskey State Park, & more), Charlevoix (Mushroom House Tours of Charlevoix & Castle Farms) and Empire (Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, Pierce Stocking Scenic Drive, & more). And it doesn't end there: indulge your taste buds at Food & Drink, do a tasting at Bowers Harbor Vineyards, fly down the slopes at Nub's Nob, and buy something for everyone on your list at The Village at Grand Traverse Commons.

To find photos, where to stay, more things to do, and tourist information, go to the Traverse City online trip itinerary builder .

In December, plan for daily highs up to 1°C, and evening lows to -5°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 19th (Thu) to allow enough time to travel back home.
